I never pass up the opportunity to chat with cute boys, and with Wake Wars getting set up down stairs in the BOB parking lot, I had to go see what was going on!

We've got professional, advanced and amateur wakeboarders and wakeskaters, the riders will be thrust through a 20’ wide x 40’ long take-off pool via a motorized winch system, just as if they were being pulled by a boat, where they will launch into the air showcasing their best tricks before landing in a 40’ wide x 90’ long splash pool.
